Let's denote the first term of the arithmetic progression as a and the common difference as d .

1. The sum of the extremes:

Given that the first term plus the tenth term equals 22, we have

a + (a + 9d) = 22

2a + 9d = 22

2a = 22 - 9d

a = 11 - \frac{9d}{2}

2. The product of the third and fourth terms:

The third term isa + 2d and the fourth term is a + 3d .

Given that the product of the third and fourth terms is 48, we have

(a + 2d)(a + 3d) = 48

solvinf equation we get

Answer:d = 2 and a=2 .
